I cast on my scarf during the opening ceremonies and did not make much head way. Here is what I have done so far. It is starting to look a little too wide so I think I might have to rip it back and make it a bit skinner.
I dug up this yummy yarn looking for a purpose. It is a wool and silk blend and so soft! I wish I had more, but I think our local yarn shop has discontinued carrying it. My favorite pattern is the "V" for Victory scarf! It is a basic pattern with a garter stitch edge and a "v" worked in reverse stocking stitch. I think I will make another, as soon as I can find some yarn......
My scarf is ravelry pattern Knick. It has all knit stitches, no purls! I did modify it a bit, instead of knit 5 stitches I knit 3, making the repeat a bit narrower. It makes a very soft and squishy scarf, and very easy to knit! I tried it first on some soft chunky yarn, it came out very nice, but I did not have enough yarn for it. So I found this yarn instead, a sport weight acrylic. I would like to some day make it with the chunky yarn again!
